Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, & Kendrick Lamar Headline Super Bowl 2022 Half-Time Show

Pepsi & Jay Z's Roc Nation are assembling an Avengers caliber cast of musical talent for the Super Bowl 56 half-time show. 

This year the Super Bowl is taking over SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, right in Dr.Dre's backyard. He along with Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Mary J. Blige will perform at the half-time show for one of the most star studded spectacles in the league's history. 

The Super Bowl half time show has come a long way from college marching bands and drill teams. 

In fact, A-list musical talent never graced the half-time show stage until Michael Jackson performed at the Rose Bowl in 1993. 

After Michael Jackson set the stage other musical icons followed suit including Bruce Springsteen, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Aerosmith, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and Beyonce. 

Arguably the most legendary Super Bowl half-time performance came from Prince at Dolphin Stadium in 2007, where he sang "Purple Rain" in the middle of a storm. Talk about atmosphere!
2022's lineup of talent has an impressive combined total of 43 Grammy wins. 

"The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl half time show and to do it in my own backyard will be one of the biggest thrills in my career," Dr. Dre said in a statement. "I'm grateful to Jay-Z, Roc Nation, and Pepsi, as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J Blige, and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment."

We'll see what these icons have in store for us on February 13th, 2022.
